Advice for Parents
Family Support Worker.
We are very fortunate at Danesholme Infant Academy to have an experienced Family Worker. Her job is to help you to help your child get the best out of our Academy and give emotional and practical help and advice to families that are having long or short term difficulties.
There are quite often things going on at home that we like to think aren't affecting the children, when in fact they see, hear and pick up on more than we give them credit for.
If we can offer help with whatever is troubling you or your family that can only be a benefit to your children and hopefully improve on how well they do at the Academy - not just in the classroom, but forming relationships with other children and adults and in their mental wellbeing. Focussing on the 'whole child'.
We can help with:
- attendance issues.
- 123 Magic courses for behaviour management.
- liaising with other professionals eg: nurse, health visitor.
- Drop-in sessions - a listening ear or a shoulder to cry on. Advice and support.
